She has been such a trooper. I couldn't ask for a better patient. haha. I am now lovingly referred to as "The night nurse" or "Reggie." Reggie being the most appropriate British name Anna could come up with on the fly for her "butler" *ahem* me. We have had some hilarious times together being roommates again, these past 3 (almost 4) weeks. When you're running on lack of sleep and wake in the middle of the night, well, let's just say that everything is hilarious.
In some ways, I am understanding a teensy bit of what new moms face. Yesterday I thought of posting a status like this "Anna slept the whole night through. yay for sleep! She is also doing really well on tummy time. I mean, pretty consistently for 3 weeks. She also ate really well yesterday....." etc...
Overall, God is sustaining us amazingly. Some days are a lot harder than others, but He gives us the grace to keep going.
We are super blessed by all the love and encouragement we have gotten from family and friends. Last night our Community group gals all came out to our house for our usual Wednesday night meeting so Anna could participate. She went to bed saying, "I am so happy!" That was a blessing!
Thanks for your prayers!

It was such a blessing...and so nice to get out of the house for a bit!
